What Compensation Solicitors Can I Trust Online?

When it comes to making a personal injury claim, choosing a solicitor who is experienced with handling cases similar to your own and somebody who you get on with is important because it makes the claims process so much easier. However, it’s also important that your solicitor is trustworthy, and to that end there are a few ways to ensure you have a solicitor on your side who is qualified to handle your case.
Practicing certificate
The first way to ensure your solicitor is trustworthy is to ask to see their practicing certificate. By law, so

licitors must have one of these. But not only that, the practicing certificate must be one governed by the SRA Practice Framework Rules 2011 and by the Solicitors Act 1974 as amended. If any solicitor you contact doesn’t have one of these, then they are not trustworthy, it’s as simple as that. And if you are concerned that a solicitor is practicing without a certificate, you can also report them to the SRA.

How else do I know who I can trust?

If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault and you are thinking about making a claim for compensation, there’s a good chance you started your search for the best solicitor online. To this end, you should always use a search engine to find out more about the practice or the solicitor in questio


n. Simply Googling “law firm + reviews” or “solicitor name + reviews” will provide you with plenty to go on. From the information given to you, you will be able to cross untrustworthy solicitors off your list.

In terms of who are the most trustworthy compensation solicitors online, we would say they are the ones who provide testimonials from real clients and those who aren’t afraid to pick up the phone and talk to you about your case. A good solicitor will listen to your story and help you to ascertain your eligibility to make a claim. If you are eligible, then they will guide you through your options with absolutely no pressure to proceed with a claim. Moreover, all information provided to you should be in confidence.

Another indicator that you can trust compensation solicitors online is if they have received an


y industry-recognised awards. For example, the Law Society Excellent Awards recognise the most outstanding legal practitioners in their field. However, it’s also important to consider that many smaller firms are overlooked for awards, and that most solicitors are more focused on providing a top service to their clients than they are scooping up the latest accolades. Still, awards are nice, and they show a solicitor is at the top of their game.
